Notes and Editorial Reviews

[O]ne could go so far as to say that Neville Marriner is English music, for even though this ensemble, which he founded in 1959 for noontime concerts in the church that gave the orchestra its name, made its reputation via a series of stunning recordings of Baroque works, Marriner and his colleagues went on to fill a significant gap in the recorded repertoire of British music by championing these works and many others by British composers... [M]asterful interpretations...especially Butterworth's A Shropshire Lad and The Banks of Green Willow...
